Every Leaf
Autumn is my absolute favorite season so I'm very much in the mood for Autumn-themed cards.  I love the colors of the inspiration picture for the latest House of Cards challenge (and Curtain Call coincidentally).  And the rough woodgrain.  Love that.  What does the pic make you think of?  Why not show us by joining in the fun?!  Hope to see you there!

Btw, for this card I used a Memory Box leafy border die turned about for the tree branch.  Really getting my money's worth out of the new die!

Fall, Leaves, Fall  

by Emily Brontë

Fall, leaves, fall; die, flowers, away;
Lengthen night and shorten day;
Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
I shall sing when night’s decay
Ushers in a drearier day. 

The Details:  Memento Elderberry, Dandelion, Bamboo Leaves, Cantaloupe, Potter's Clay and Tangelo, PTI sentiment, Paper Studio embossing folder, Memory Box Leafy Border die, Flavours Gourmet Smoked Sea Salt cardstock, Recollections white coverstock base
I'm entering this in Curtain Call Lovely Leaves, The Male Room #18 Autumn/Fall, Simply Create Too #69 Something New,  Just Us Girls 257 Leaves,
